IP Phone Inventory Report

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-08-28

The IP Phone Inventory Report provides information about the IP phones currently in use in the organization. The report is based on phone registrations and logons. It should not be considered a complete inventory. For example, you might have gotten rid of phones that are still listed in the report (because they logged on at least once). Likewise, phones that you recently deployed might not show up in the report because they have not yet been used to log on to Lync Server.

Filters provide a way for you to return a more finely-targeted set of data or to view the returned data in different ways. For example, the IP Phone Inventory enables you to view only the phones manufactured by a specific company, or even a specific version of those phones. You can also choose how data should be grouped. In this case, registrations are grouped by hour, day, week, or month.

The following table lists the filters that you can use with the IP Phone Inventory Report.
